A wonderful series Mark. I always enjoy your photos, as well as looking at your EXIF information so I can see what settings and such you are using (wait, does that mean I'm a copy cat? ).

I agree with this statement. I've noticed that a LOT of photogs are shooting with "MTV-like" angles (Steve's words there), which can make for some awesome photos. However, if everything you take is at an angle or not level, it can be distracting.

I think you've got a good mix here, and I don't see a bad habit yet. It's good that you were able to notice this yourself, before you get any feedback from clients.

Keep up the awesome work Brother!

Glad you like them Billy. I try to be my biggest critic prior to other people and always tell my wife that I'm not happy after a shoot even if the client is very pleased and 'normal' people don't see what I've seen or would have like to have done. This is the way I build each shoot so I keep improving (well hopefully). Then I also like the eyes of others who are photographers and can see possibly what I've missed or give ideas for experiment and change.

I've got 2 more weddings later this month and possibly one or two next month as well so I will keep trying new things.

We haven't seen anything posted by you recently so you will have to share something soon

We shall see. I have a reception to shoot this evening. I'm taking along the EOS Rebel T2i we have in for review, along with my new 580EX II I got this week (only $398 shipped next day air via Amazon) and a cool new product from Gary Fong (Collapsible Lightsphere).

I'll see what I can do about posting a couple shots.

Spot the person looking for a pay rise from IB LOL...... IB managers, he deserves it, give him one

On a serious note, will be good to see them and I'm sure they will be great.
